Poom, A., Orru, K., Ahas, R. 2017. The carbon footprint of business travel in the knowledge-intensive service sector. Transportation Research Part D 50: 292-304. http://www.sciencedirect.com/…/article/pii/S1361920916308653
Business travel shows increasing trends around the world and knowledge-intensive work processes that require trust relations are often behind it. Mobility lab explores the reasons and amounts of business travel, the practices of business travel management, and the possibility to substitute business travel with virtual communication channels in knowledge-intensive service sector. Furthermore, with the help of active mobile positioning, focus groups and individual interviews, we relate real travelling amounts and corresponding carbon load to the importance of these trips.
